The Board works in partnership with the DEI Committee and administrators to advance Cottonwood’s Equity Action Plan, as well as supporting the overall governance of the school, including approving and overseeing the annual budget, engaging with teachers and families, and facilitating events that enrich the school-community.
The CSCS board values input and support from the community. Please consider attending any of the monthly meetings or email us at email@example.com
Board members are expected to attend a monthly Board meeting, participate on at least one Board committee which includes work and occasional meetings outside of the monthly Board meeting, support and facilitate events with students, teachers, staff, and families, and engage fully the schools Equity Action Plan.
The first term on the Board is one year; after that Board members can serve up to two terms of two years each. Diversity of experiences, perspectives, and backgrounds is valued on the School Board.
